Central High counselors are here to advocate for all students, collaborate with school staff, families, and community resources. This comprehensive, standard based school counseling program encourages students to reach their highest potential. Central counselors will focus on key issues that impact student success. These focus areas include regular school attendance, advancing on grade level and graduation, and preparation for all post secondary/career opportunities. We look forward to working with you!
The CHS Counseling Department consists of ten counselors, a social worker and community counselor. Students are assigned a counselor by the first letter of their last name. One exception to this is that all students who participate in the English Language Learner program are assigned to the same counselor. Students work with additional counselors who present specialized activities in various areas related to academic achievement, personal- social development, career awareness, and college planning, Counselors meet with students individually, in small groups, and via classroom curriculum.
The counseling office, Room 129, is open 7:00 a.m. – 3:45 p.m. every weekday. To access a counselor, students complete a "Request to See Counselor Form" and their counselor will send a pass for them. In an emergency situation, teachers may write a pass for the student to access the counselor during class time. Parents/Guardians may contact a counselor by phone, email, or by setting up a meeting time. Please refer to the contact information listed below.
